My father was an able seaman and
crew member of HMS Dragonfly when it sank on the 14th of February 1942.
He survived three and a half years of hell in prisoner of war camps and returned to the
UK at Christmas 1945.
Though deeply affected by his experiences he returned to his home in the
Rhondda Valley, South Wales where he married, had two sons (I'm the eldest) and lived a fairly full life
until his death in January 1997.
I have a fair amount of information on HMS Dragonfly, a book on HMS
Grasshopper's mascot called Judy, and information on the last days of the ships in question (my dad wrote quite a
piece) for a book published in about 1994/1995.
contact Andy (webmaster) with any information.
